The Lowest Rates on International Calls to the Middle East

People who make frequent calls to the Middle East from North America or Europe should investigate the new Tel3Advantage Savings Plan.  As shown in the table below, the rates to many popular Middle East countries are comparable with low cost phone cards and much better than other popular low cost service providers like Skype which is used in the comparison.  Tel3Advantage is one of the higher quality service providers for international calling and the rates shown in the table include all fees and taxes when using a local access number.  The Skype rates are the pay-as-you-go rates on calls from the USA as listed on their website.  The phone card rate is the lowest rate listed for calls to the subject country on Smart Global Call Phone Cards International. The rates in the Table are in USA cents per minute.

1 Tel3Advantage savings plan rate on calls from the USA including fees and taxes.
2 Typical low cost phone card advertised rate on calls from the USA excluding fees and taxes.
3 Skype pay-as-you-go rate per minute as listed on their website for calls from the USA. 

It is interesting to note that the Skype pay-as-you-go rates are not very low to many locations.  Skype service is great when it is free but the cost is relatively high when used to make paid calls to land-line or mobile phones. Therefore, it is great to use Skype for free calls but nice to have another plan when making paid calls from phones.

In addition to low rates, Tel3 offers new customers a sign-up bonus in the form a of a credit that can be used to make phone calls.  New customers who sign-up using this link savings plan will get a nice bonus ($10 or more depending on initial deposit) and also get low savings plan rates.  There is no obligation, so callers can use the plan for a short or long term since there are no fees or contracts.  It is a prepaid plan where a caller deposits funds and uses them when calls are made.  The funds will remain in the account if unused.  Visit the link about for more information or call 1 800 441 0321 to speak with a representative.

If you make frequent international phone calls to Europe from the USA or Canada than you should review the service offered by Tel3Advantage.  You can visit there website here to learn about their product but don;t pay attention to the rates.  Use this link Tel3Advantage Savings Plan to sign-up since it is the same service but it offers much better rates.  They will even give you $10 in Free Calls just for trying the service.

Tel3advantage has been in the prepaid calling card business for nearly 20 years and have continued to improve their product.  Their call quality to most locations is as good as any service provider and their rates are very low.  When comparing rates to other service providers remember that Tel3Advantage rates include all fees and taxes which is unusual in the prepaid calling business.  Most prepaid calling cards advertise low rates but add on extra fees which can make their rates significantly higher.  Just read the fine print when comparing the cost of using a prepaid calling card.

Tel3Advantage also offers several added features free of charge and most international callers find these features very useful.  Some of the most popular features are listed below:


  1. On-line Call History - Each Tel3Advantage account holder has the ability to access their account on-line to make changes to account settings, add funds and also to view the history of account activity.  The on-line call history will show the account holders all calls made on the account including location called, length of the call and the total charge for the call.  In this way all calls made on a Tel3Advantage account are completely transparent.
  2. Tel3Advantage offers Apps that can be used with Smart Phones in order to make seamless international calls without dialing an access number or entering an account number.  Using a Tel3App the user can make direct dial international calls over the Tel3 Network from their mobile device.  
  3. Tel3Advantage allows up to 10 instant access phones on each account.  This means an account holder can register these phones so when any of them are used to make a call using Tel3Advantage there is no need to enter an account number or PIN code.  The system will automatically recognize these phone numbers as being associated with a Tel3Advantage account.
  4. Customers can add up to 99 Speed Dial numbers to each account.  These can be used to make international calls by pressing just two digits.  These are very convenient for people who make frequent international calls to the same phone numbers.
Tel3Advantage has recently added about 32 Countries to their Tel3 Network.  This means that Tel3Advantage customers can use their account to make cheap international calls from any of these countries. So people who want to make cheap calls to Europe from North America can use the same account to make cheap calls to the USA,Canada and almost any other country from Europe.
